For the next few months I plan on blogging through John Polhill’s Paul and His Letters (Broadman & Holman, 1999). I am teaching Pauline Lit this fall, so this is an academic exercise for me, as well as for my students. I have used Polhill for several years now and it is a rather useful guide to Paul’s letters. What I particularly enjoy is the way he places the letters within the context of the book of Acts, given that many of my students have not had a chance to study Acts closely.
I will intersperse a few posts from N. T. Wright’s Paul: A Fresh Perspective as well as other Pauline Theology items as they arise in my reading or class discussions.
